Our Vision

The Sustainability Unit aims to expand on The University of Melbourne’s position as a  leader in campus sustainability and reinforce the University’s goal of providing an exceptional learning and research environment that advances global citizenship and a sustainable society.

With a focus on enhancing existing academic and operational sustainability initiatives and providing activities and generating new opportunities the Sustainability Unit relies on partnerships within the University and in the broader community.

Universities have a special role and responsibility in confronting the challenges of climate change and environmental stewardship. The University of Melbourne is dedicated to confronting these challenges both through research and by translating best practice into action on campus.
